Try running it with perl -CS so it will UTF-8-encode the output even if perl would otherwise use Latin based on your environment. If it still looks crap, it's likely to be your terminal's fault.

    That is what printW does, see Win32::Unicode::Console

      Sorry, my bad! Well, that makes the terminal the main suspect. Maybe pipe to something akin to xxd on Windows, or perl -ne'printf "%02x ",ord $_ for split//' to further diagnose?

        I'm running on Windows XP if that makes a difference? As you can see from the output it is having trouble finding the upside down equivalent to the T, E, P, R, L, D, N. I have posted pictures here: Click Here to see the exact output.
